Summary0001814: Uplinks only allowed to be numeric
DescriptionYou untick the usage of dynamic uplinks (how does it work?)

The field "Uplink" is editable now but does not allow ports like: A1, A2, A3 or Trk1, Trk2

issue 1 a) Trk1, Trk2 ... are trunks (static) or link aggretaions (lacp) created manually on the switch CLI (do not confuse cisco usage of the word trunk) for 5400zl and 2910al series.

issue 1 b) A1 is the first port on modul A on HP ProCurve 5400zl series.

issue 2) If there is only one uplink port - which is perfectly fine with an lacp created link connected to a distributed trunk/multi chassis lag or if you don't care about redundancy - there should be the possibility of configuring one port only as uplink.
Steps To ReproduceMenu Configuration - Switches:
- Click 'Add Switch'
- Fill any non-numerical value to the file "Uplink"
- The field and caption gets framed/written in red and you cannot save your edit.
Additional InformationTested with 4.3.0-201407140016 and 4.3.0

You can workaround issue number two by filling in "1, 1" if your only uplink port is port number 1.

when you define an uplink port it mean that it´s the ifIndex which is an integer.

Hello Fabrice,

thank you very much for clarifying this issue. It did help me a lot.

for future reference:

ifIndices for HP5400zl (max. of 288 ports as 5412zl)

Trk1 is ifIndex 290
Trk2 is ifIndex 291
Trk3 is IfIndex 292

ifIndices for HP2910al (fixed port switch with 44 1000baseTX and 4 fiber ports)

Trk1 is ifIndex 54
Trk2 is ifIndex 55

Kind regards,
